Charlie Dore returns to Ropetackle with her long-time collaborator Julian Littman of Steeleye Span on Friday 21st June. This is the first time Charlie will have shared her double award-winning album Dark Matter with her Shoreham fans and she’s looking forward to catching up with them for a multi-instrumental evening of ‘intriguingly other’ eclectica, bursting with earworms and crunchy lyrics.
They’ll dip into favourites from Charlie's past 6 albums as well as sharing stories and original acoustic versions of hits she has written for others, including George Harrison and Jimmy Nail. Charlie has written platinum selling hits for other artists but she still keeps the best songs for herself. And there’s always a possibility of a new angle on her own song, Pilot of the Airwaves - still a national radio favourite.
“Beautiful, existential, metaphysical and intruigingly other. Zen folk I want to call it. Charlie Dore’s ‘Time Out of Mind’“ Ricky Ross, BBC Scotland
“An amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter...a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful.” Mike Harding
"A gift for melody, brave, poignant, entertaining, original" Guardian ★★★★
